It may be forecast for rain for the next couple of weeks, which can seem rather depressing for some. Me, I don’t mind too much. Let it rain. Purge the land and wash away what’s left of the summer. As good old Eeyore said - “The nicest thing about rain is that it always stops eventually”. Soon, the colder, golden days will be here. When the sun sits low in the sky and you feel warm inside. The best hiking days of the year are yet to come! #autumn #autumnlove #autumnhiking #outdoorlovers #mountainfitness #mountainsfordays #fitpregnancy #pregnanthiking #mountainmama #vangotribe #thegreatoutdoors #staywild #wildheart #madeformountains #hikeitbaby #pregnancyjourney #mumblogger #travelblogger #forwhereveryougo #adventurelife #getoutside #outdoorlovers #meallnantarmachan #mytiso #scotlandexplore #munrobagging #ilovescotland #outandaboutscotland #scottishmountains

It’s been several days now since @carlos.suarez_climb and I stumbled back into El Chalten after eight exhausting days alone in the cold Patagonian winter. Since getting back to town it has taken me some time to reflect on the journey and the nature of success and failure in alpine climbing (hence the delay in posting!). In a simple sense we came to Patagonia to climb the west face of Cerro Torre in winter, we tried and we failed. Despite the good fortune of having a long period of stable weather our timing was less than perfect and after a long approach we were forced to spend three days in Circo de Los Altares waiting for the winds on the summit to drop. Those days spent in the cold cramped tent with minimal food and water probably cost us the power we needed to climb the final hard pitches to the summit. When we finally made our attempt we climbed 1300m to the Elmo, but upon arriving there it was clear neither of us had the strength to continue. The summit of my dreams felt so tantalisingly close but in reality it was still a long ways away. The final 300m of the Ragni Route involves the most demanding climbing and despite having worked so hard and invested so much in the project, climbing higher simply couldn’t be justified. This decision was heartbreaking but is also perhaps this is where we have succeeded. As a team of two, completely alone in the vast expanse of the southern ice field any hope for a rescue should something have gone wrong would have been pure fantasy. At the end of the day we pushed ourselves to the limit of risk that can be reasonably justified and this unfortunately did not involve standing on the summit. It did involve getting back to town alive though, so now all we can do is recover, stay motivated and return again to keep trying this incredible mountain. #cerrotorre #cerrotorrewinter #patagoniawinter #torrewinter #ragni #alpineclimbing #patagonia #mytiso #blackdiamondequipment #getvertical #chalten #climbing #adventure #asnesskis #chaltenmassif #dreammountain #cerrotorrewestface #circodelosaltares #southernpatagonianicefield #alpinism #nofilter

Hi everyone 👋🏻 - You might have noticed my lack of activity over the last month. I decided to take some time out to focus on more important aspects of my business and it also gave me some time to think about how I’ve been using @instagram and how I’ll be using it in the future. I’ll be stripping my posts right back from now on and pretty much starting a fresh. Thanks to those of you who have hung about and also contacted me directly to make sure I’m still alive. Here’s a photo from a recent hike up the one of the best wee mountains in Scotland / with @davemaccy - anyone else fancy being there right now? ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #hiddenscotland #visitscotland #scotspirit #lifeofadventure #mytiso #stayandwander #solarcollective #scotland_insta #exploretocreate #scottishhighlands #mountainstories #sidetrackedmagazine #ourplanetdaily #natgeohub #instagood #adventurevisuals #nomadict

An Caisteal, round 2 ✅ Beinn a’Chroin ✅ This was my second attempt at An Caisteal, the previous one being about 6 years ago. The contrast in hill day experiences really got me thinking. The underfoot conditions that day were poor, with snow in places. The weather also turned part way through the ascent and the wind became stronger than anticipated from the forecast with rain/snow hampering visibility. The decision was made by the group to turn back. Making the decision to turn back, or otherwise change a hiking plan can be a difficult one for some people to comprehend. I have had many non-hiking friends ask me how I feel about ‘failing’ an attempt at a trek or hill. However, I don’t see it as failing, and that’s not just a refusal to use that word. I just don’t see turning back or altering plans as a negative thing. Those decisions are often harder to make than the one to continue trudging onwards. Not many people like to face up to their limitations, but I feel that having the ability to truly understand the boundaries of your abilities is critical in the hills. If in doubt, I’d always rather err on the side of safety; the mountains will still be there for a future attempt. Yesterday was a prime example of that; the mountain was a different place entirely: bright clear skies, sun and perfect visibility. I believe mountains are there to be enjoyed, not endured. I’d rather still be there tomorrow to enjoy them. . 📸 1 & 2 @roxannagbaz . . . . . #ancaisteal #beinnachroin #crianlarich #walkhighlands #mountainsarecalling #mountainsafety #hillwalking #scotland #highlands #scottishhighlands #mytiso #gooutside #igooutdoors #wearetheoutdoors #munrobagging #munro #queersinnature #outsidewithpride

“Of all the paths you take in life, make sure a few of them are dirt.” - John Muir. . . How can one man have so many epic quotes? It’s Sunday night, the fear is majorly kicking in and I’m just telling myself over and over that in 4 days we will be heading to Mull and that I can do anything for four days! . . We visited my mum today and she was in good spirits. I wish I lived a bit closer to home sometimes but I know she doesn’t want me running down to see her every day anyway. We talked loads and looked at all our old cameras and found photos of Campbell when he was just a puppy. It was a great wee afternoon with her 💖 . . Fingers crossed your week is filled with happiness and sunshine and that your adventures are epic if you are off work! . . #sunday #sundaynight #fear #sundayfear #backtowork #nature #forest #epicview #salomonwmn #womenwhohike #vanlife #scotland #skye #timetogetout #timetoplay #builtforadventure #positivevibes #goodvibesonly #adventure #girlswhohike #outdoorswomen #keeponhiking #getoutside #getinspiredgetoutside #mytiso #livebreatheoutdoors #togetheroutdoors

The week after the Isle of May, this one dragged me up Ben Vorlich and then she popped up Ben Vane on the way back. I'd had enough by then and as my muscles were still protesting days later I was glad that I went and sat by the loch shore. I still had a great day but I was glad of the decision not to push myself. . . . #scotland #visitscotland #mytiso #adventuremostordinary #munro #goniceplacesdogoodthings #MerrellEU

Another terrific day out in the highlands, and two more Munro’s bagged. Fantastic weather, plenty of dogs and views for miles.

The Cobbler. My new favourite mountain! Stunning day yesterday and some exciting news, read on... 👇⁠ ∙⁠ With 55 days to go until our Everest Basecamp Trek I'm excited to share our plan to raise funds for Blood Bikes Scotland.⁠ ∙⁠ Blood Bikes Scotland offer a free of charge transport service to the NHS. Moving blood samples and other medical equipment between hospitals. The Blood Bike service is funded entirely by donations and is run by volunteers who give up their time to support the charity.⁠ ∙⁠ Without Blood Bikes Scotland providing their service the NHS is forced to either spend thousands of pounds on taxis and couriers or to redirect under pressure ambulances to meet their transport needs.⁠ ∙⁠ Our goal is to help Blood Bikes Scotland add another bike to their fleet so they can expand their service and further support the NHS in the amazing work they do. 100% of any funds raised will be donated to the charity on completion of our challenge.⁠ ∙⁠ Not everyone can sponsor our adventure, but a like is free so please like this post and follow my account if you'd like to follow the challenge. And if you would like to donate please see the link in my bio!⁠ ∙⁠ #bloodbikesscotland #itswhatwedo #everestbasecamptrek #ebc2019 #thecobbler #mytiso #ordnancesurvey #munrobagging #corbettbagging #hillwalking #walkhighlands #mountainviews #mountains #landscape #thisisscotland

The view from the Pap of Glencoe is incredible. Yesterday I climbed it for the first time by adding it on to the Aonach Eagach ridge walk, and it was definitely worth the extra bit of effort! #scotland #hiking #adventure #glencoe #thepapofglencoe #lochleven #ballachulish #landscape #view #loch #mountains #fitness #trail #running #panorama #mytiso #picoftheday

Kettle on & cuppa’s poured on Beinn Dearg summit Friday morning. What a day we had to bag the 4 munros. Incredible day saw unbelievable views all day. Nice pace throughout saw 11 hours of hiking, 45,000 steps, 20 miles of hiking & a cool 3500 calories burned via the Apple Watch. ✅✅✅✅ • • • • • #visitscotland #thisisscotland #scotlandgreatshots #scotlandexplore #scotlandbeauty #ig_scotland #loves_scotland #scotlandforever #scotland_greatshots #mytiso #munrobagging #scotspirit #icu_scotland #thescottishcollective #scotlandsmoutains #scotlandmagazine #yourscotland #scottishroamers #scotlandisbeautiful #igersscotland #scotspirit #mountainlife #scotlandshots #walkhighlands #mountainlovers #unlimitedscotland #scotlandlover #hiddenscotland #wanderlustscotland

It is on days like this (working Sundays 😒) that my desire to be outdoors is stronger, even with this rain, yes 😂 In the picture, views over Loch Long at sunset, couldn't ask for any better! . . . . . . . . . #womenwhoexplore #womenwhohike #femalesolohikers #timetogetout #mytiso #gogetoutside #gooutdoors #sunset #hillwalking #munrobagging #peaceful #midweek #wildcamping #clearskyes

So the @ringofsteallskyrace ... I completed it in 6hrs 26mins 51secs and placed 272 out of 680 finishers (I think around 100 dropped out). With my goal being 5hrs 30 I’m pretty disappointed with my time to be honest. I suffered the worst cramp I’ve ever experienced in both legs, just after the second munro, with 2 more still to do and 10-12km of running back to the finish line. That ruined my chances of a 5hr 30min finish. Huge lessons learned. The main one being is salt is your friend in these events! If it wasn’t for a kind hearted runner giving me his salt tablets I don’t know how I would of finished. Chuffed to say I’ve done it and was part of a @goldentrailseries race. Feel like I’ve got some unfinished business though... - - - - #running #run #uphillathlete #salomon #trail #skyline #goldentrailseries #fitness #munro #mountain #mountains #outdoors #ringofsteall #thenorthface #getout #getoutside #getagrip #hill #sport #mytiso #scotland #scotlandlover #scotland_insta #explorescotland #visitscotland #scotland_greatshots #athlete #race @uphill_athlete

On to Cruach Ardrain the second Munro of the day. I haven’t spent much time in the Lomond area but this was a great place to start. Stunning views of Ben More and the surrounding ranges. Could even spot The Ben in the distance. I’d forgotten how much fun it is to hike pathless! The challenge of finding the driest route amongst the expanse of bog. Though a little bog is a lot more fun to jog in ⛰ . Can anyone recommend good waterproof, hill running shoes? 🏃‍♀️ . . 📍Scotland 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 . . . . #munrobagging #trossachs #scottishhighlands #hiking #instascotland #hillwalkingscotland #getoutside #thegreatoutdoors #livebreatheoutdoors #lifeofadventure #trailmagazine #lovescotland #ig_scot #mytiso #thisismyadventure #icu_scotland
